About Loews Regency Hotel
Once the preferred New York City resting spot of Hollywood elite like Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, these days the Loews Regency Hotel extends its luxurious comforts and attention to detail to travelers seeking comfort, style, and location.
The upscale Loews Regency Hotel has one of the more stylish addresses in New York City: Park Ave., near 61st St., on the Upper East Side, just blocks from leafy Central Park. Stroll out of the hotel, and the park beckons, from its shaded pathways and Central Park Zoo to the Wollman Rink for ice-skating in winter. Venture north of the hotel to explore Museum Mile where you will find world-famous museums like The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Frick Collection and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
Though the Loews Regency Hotel still offers up the same excellent service and style that once attracted Hollywood’s glitterati, these days the hotel offers the same luxurious comforts and attention to detail to families – pets and all. The Loews Loves Kids program includes a gift bag (with toys and other goodies) for kids under 10; a Kids Closet, where you can borrow items during your stay, from strollers and baby blankets to age-appropriate DVDs; children’s menus; and coloring books on request. Also, some suites have sofa beds and rooms can be made child-proof in advance. Furry members of the family receive a welcome basket, as well as pet-friendly amenities, from access to groomers and dog-walkers to beds and litter boxes. Central Park, a playground for kids and pets, is just two blocks away.
Business travelers will appreciate the business center, fitness center (with sauna and steam room), and in-hotel hair salon.
Classic rooms are decorated in neutral beige and cream tones and appointed with marble-topped desks, flat-screen TVs, picture windows, elegant furnishings and designer toiletries. Luxury suites include a terrace with seating and beautiful views of Park Avenue.
For a taste of grand old New York, ease into the evening at the famous Feinstein’s at the Regency, a swank supper club where you can enjoy cabaret-style performances by pianist Michael Feinstein and a rotating cast of celebrities that have included Tony Danza, Cyndi Lauper, Joan Collins and Lea Michelle.
The Loews Regency Hotel will undergo an extensive $70 million renovation beginning January 2013 with an anticipated completion by the end of the year.
